Project Description

American Steel

Size: 190,400 SF  |  Location: Canby, OR  |  Client: American Metals Corporation

American Steel, a major Portland Metro Area steel manufacturing company, relocated its Portland facility to City of Canby in 2007. The new facility sits on more than 10 acres and includes a 190,400 square foot rail served building.

Substantial infrastructure improvements to serve the expanding industrial park were facilitated by Urban Renewal funding and required detailed coordination efforts with the city of Canby and their engineering consultant, Clackamas County and multiple service providers.

The design build project required a fast-track schedule with the contractor brought in during design to assist in coordinating the extensive MEP systems serving the sheet & plate mill lines, burn tables, shears and associated tools. The facility includes multiple crane ways with capacities varying from 15- to 30-tons. The new facility is part of a larger industrial park planned by the City of Canby with American Steel being the first customer to build on the site.
